The Joomla! Documentation Wiki is divided into namespaces. What is a namespace? A group of pages put into collections of pages, which differentiate between the purpose of the pages at a high level. Pages in certain namespaces can also have special properties or behave differently when they interact with other pages.

Joomla! Versions

Namespaces are being used to separate Joomla! versions currently being supported. The current Joomla! versions supported are located in the J2.5 and J3.5 namespaces. As the namespaces indicate, they are Joomla! 2.5 and Joomla! 3.5.

Version Quick Links

For convenience, a quick jump link to articles is either version namespaces is located at the top of the article(right).

  • If there is another article for a different Joomla! version, the link will say so by indicating, See:JVersion:<version#>.
  • If the article doesn't have an associated article for another version, it will state Only this version. and link here.

Namespaces on the Joomla! Docs Wiki


The main namespace is for general pages or page without an association to specific version of Joomla! Examples:

  • [[Need example
  • [[Need example 2

An exception is pages which can be applied equally to current supported versions without the use of version separation sections. e.g. A section of "Do this for Joomla! version" integrated into a page.


When you create an account, you are given a personal user page. It would look something like this, User:DocsUser or User: followed by whatever username you used to register on the wiki. Think of it as your own personal page. A place to experiment with wiki code, new pages or pages you are thinking of creating.


This is the 'Project' namespace. Pages in this namespace are associated with policy or guidelines, wiki projects and general user information related to the Docs Wiki.


Pages in this namespace are a like the title of the namespace states, a portal. Portal pages can take a user to many pages which are grouped together by a subject, such as Portal:Bug Squad. A page for all things relevant to being a Joomla! Bug Squad member.
